Why Did The Chevy Volt Get The Worst Cars In America?
Toyota will release its latest model of the Camry in the US this year, but the Chevy Volt will be one of the only cars on the road without a full-sized battery.
The Chevy Volt is the only car that can charge at home using an internal USB charger.
The Volt’s battery capacity is 5.5 kilowatt hours, compared to the 5.8 kilowatts that are required by the EPA’s Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle (FCEV) standards.
The EPA has not yet issued a recommendation for the Volt to be classified as an FCEV, meaning the Volt will not be eligible for subsidies.”FCEV is a very new technology, but there is a lot of demand for these EVs in the U.S.,” said Chris Smith, director of product management at Toyota, at a CES press event on Thursday.
“There is a huge demand for FCEV EVs in California, and this is an excellent opportunity for us to help fulfill that demand.”
Toyota is launching its new Volt at CES on Friday, and it will have an announcement for attendees on Saturday.
The company will have a full press release on Monday.
